Yeah Yeah Yeah - The Story of Modern Pop (Bob Stanley)
Picked this up last week and have been struggling to put it down. A very readable, informative and enjoyable account of the history of pop music. Yes, its been done before but Bob Stanley is full aware of that fact and made his account as unique as he can. It essentially covers the history of the Pop from the first charts in the 1950s all the way through to the 90s but the ground it covers in between is fascinating. Plenty of interesting stories, useful facts and information on the subject. Can imagine its going to come in very useful for quizzing purposes too!
